Let's Talk Survival

5.11 Tactical’s Covrt 18 Backpack is as sharp looking as it is rugged and built to last. For increased durability, the Covrt 18 is made from high-quality materials including 500D nylon, YKK zippers and Duraflex buckles. No skimping on quality here. With a capacity of nearly 30 liters, there is plenty of room for typical EDC gear with room to spare.
